Montana Special Election Candidate Greg Gianforte Body Slams Reporter and Begins Punching

Ben Jacobs of The Guardian, among others, was on hand to interview the top two candidates, Republican Greg Gianforte and Democrat Rob Quist, for Montana’s only seat in the US House of Representatives.

While Fox News reporters were chatting up Gianforte, Jacobs came in, put a recorder to his face and asked if he had a response to the newly released Congressional Budget Office report on the American Health Care Act. Gianforte told him he’d talk to him later but Jacobs kept asking before being told to talk to his press guy.

That’s when Gianforte summoned his inner Hulk Hogan. He grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him on the ground. Gianforte then reportedly started punching Jacobs and yelling, “I’m sick and tired of this!”

Jacobs told him he broke his glasses and said he wanted to call the cops before leaving. Gianforte started apologizing to the Fox News crew but the dude just slammed a reporter to the ground by his neck. I’m not sure Fox News is where you want to direct your apology.

Gianforte press guy Shane Scalon tried to spin it in a statement he issued despite the account being backed up by Fox News of all places. In it, he claims Jacobs entered the campaign office without permission, aggressively shoved a recorder in Greg’s face, and began asking badgering questions.”

He added, “After asking Jacobs to lower the recorder, Jacobs declined. Greg then attempted to grab the phone that was pushed in his face. Jacobs grabbed Greg’s wrist, and spun away from Greg, pushing them both to the ground. It’s unfortunate that this aggressive behavior from a liberal journalist created this scene at our campaign volunteer BBQ.”

Those damn liberals. Can’t even handle being slammed to the ground by the neck. What kind of country have we become when the cops need to be called to handle an unprovoked assault on the member of the press. Cry more. Your puddle of liberal tears merely serves as the lube he uses to masturbate with. In fact, Greg fucking Gianforte will use the god damn Constitution as his cum rag because he’s tired of you snowflakes whining about your rights. Vote for Greg Gianforte! He’ll jerk off into the Constitution!
